For Little Lights Chapter 4, we spent time with the many volunteers in Benton, Kentucky who serve meals to those who need it. Marcella’s Kitchen is celebrating its first year in the new facility. The line of regular guests and friends of Marcella’s Kitchen gathers to take away plates of hot food to enjoy in the dining room. When you look up, you can see “Dining with Grace” above the kitchen as volunteers cook, prepare deliveries, and serve their friends in Marshall County. Marcella Perkins started the kitchen around seven years ago with the hopes of never letting anyone in Marshall County go hungry or live lonely. The meal is free, the food is delicious, and the friendship is priceless. No one is paid to do this work. Marcella’s Kitchen operates on love and donations to serve guests, and welcomes anyone to come and spend some time with friends and fill their plates.
“I tell you the truth, Whatever you did for the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me”
